The Project:

University Townhouses offers off-campus housing to Syracuse University students, as well as off-campus housing for other nearby university students and young professionals. University Townhouses needed a more modern website that also appealed to students. Additionally, University Townhouses wanted user-friendly features, such as online forms and a virtual townhouse tour.

The Solution:

ACS, Inc. Web Design & SEO improved the University Townhouses website, creating more pages to provide more information for potential residents. The more informative site aims to simplify and streamline the purchasing process, making the experience more comfortable for potential residents because they’ll know what to expect on move-in day. In addition to a more informative site that reduces the intimidation that comes with finding a place to live, University Townhouses’ site features a 360 tour of a townhouse. To appeal to students, the site highlighted local attractions and resident life. The site also includes features that improve service for current and potential residents, including the ability to securely pay online, request an appointment, request townhouse maintenance and to apply for a townhouse.


Responsive Website Design

73% of college students use smartphones, according to Ball State University research. University Townhouses’ website is designed to look and work just as good on a smartphone as it does on a laptop or any other device.

But college students aren’t the only ones getting online through mobile devices. 60% of all Internet traffic comes from mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets, according to industry research. Another two-thirds of people are more likely to buy from a site if it’s mobile-friendly, according to Google research.

A site that isn’t friendly for mobile isn’t friendly for your business.

Brand Identity

University Townhouses’ old site lacked identity. The new University Townhouses presents itself as a safe, affordable and welcoming off-campus student living option. University Townhouses’ old site had no logo, no brand-identifying color and no message that separated itself from other off-campus housing options. ACS, Inc. Web Design & SEO made day-and-night differences to University Townhouses’ brand, with an identifiable logo, a color scheme that associates it with the school of many of its residents, and content that targets the student demographic.

ACS, Inc. Web Design & SEO turned University Townhouses from an undefined brand to company with a clear message, clear target demographic and unified identity. Let’s work together to do the same for your business.
